Open House for JUBILEE

Today I went to the open rehearsals for JUBILEE, a production which will be performed at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester in November.

Just three days into rehearsals, the cast invited the Open Exchange Network to contribute to their brainstorming process. JUBILEE is based on Derek Jarman's iconic film which experimented with DIY fashion, music riots - punk at its height. This stage adaption will take the 1977 film and centre it in the social and political turmoil of 2017 - the play's ideas of creativity and nihilism are just as relevant today as they were then.
